  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Im really struggling with finding information on this. I have a tropical 38 liter tank, planted, with only 2 shrimp in. Ive been away and someone looked after them, i had a fish which died a couple days ago. I was going to make it into a all shrimp tank until I just noticed that one of them has...
  3. Plants
    I can't find any recent information on this. I am dealing with this horror right now.... Started about 3 weeks ago. Sudden, fast, and merciless. Just when I was starting to feel confident about Anubias and investing in more unusual varieties (Pinto, Gold Coin, Alfezii (variegated no less!)...
  4. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi all, I recently came down with an outbreak of planaria or rhabadocoela worms in my new planted tank. They are still small in size, but growing in numbers, and tend to come out when the lights are off/the tank is dark. There seem to be hundreds. I have a "low tech" 5 gal Fluval Spec V with...
  5. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I have some hydra in my tank which I want to get rid of. Loads of people say that Genchem No-Planaria will kill the hydra. Some people say it will affect the fish and others say it won't. Anyone ever used it with fish?

    Sterling isn't doing very well. Ever since the heater went kaput on Easter weekend (I was out of town, so I don't know how long it was out after I left) he has been having issues (I replaced the heater the day I got home with a better heater 25 watt marina. He is in a 4 gallon planted...

    This might be a stupid question, but it's such a controversial topic I just want to make sure: is it safe for me to treat my betta's minor fin rot with Bettafix? I used to have two Endler-Guppies in the tank with my Betta and the larger Endler always had a knack for nipping and bullying his...
  8. Fish
    I took a gamble, ordered some fish online, and put them right into my main tank (20H, should've QT'ed). They were apparently healthy last Thursday when they arrived, but over the weekend I started losing fish. The victims have white around their mouths, get sluggish, and stop eating. They die...

    I have three goldfish one comet, one shubunkin and one sarasa in a 36 gal bow front aquarium, now with live plants. I had a major water quality issue about three months ago due to failing pumps combined with a section of gravel in the tank that I somehow failed to vacuum efficiently. This...
  10. Plants
    I find it useful for the community here to have a list of plants that dissolve after a dip. Please state your substance, dilution and length of time followed by plants that turn to mush ( ie. unable to grow after treatment, not just melted leaves). I will try to update my post so the list is...
  11. Aquascaping
    I have just received a secondhand piece of bogwood. It came from the same tank as some fish that I'm about to place into my tank. Do I need to treat it or wash it in a special way before placing it in my tank?

    I've been told fissidens doesn't tolerate the "copper treatment" and that also removes the option for keeping shrimp in a copper treated tank. But has anyone used No Planaria in a tank with fissidens? Was the plant effected? Product link...
  13. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have a newly set up tank and recently read about the No-Planaria product available from Green Leaf Aquariums. It looks like many people have had this successfully wipe out unwanted snails. I am interested in using this, but plan on adding some of my golden rabbit snails to this tank from...

    Hi Guys, I'm brand new to the forum and after reading a few articles here I think you may be able to help. I own one 12G fluval edge which I adore. I had it stocked with 10 guppies, real plants, a small butterfly pleco and a zebra snail. All was well. No algae, healthy fish for months...
  15. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Long story short: found out my Betta has a fungus and quarantined him out of his 6.6 tank that he shares with four snails. My question: do I also have to treat the 6.6 tank and how do I go about doing that? Thanks to anyone that can shed some light for me.

    I brought home 4 new ember tetras earlier in the week, and just noticed one of them has developed ich. I properly acclimated them, and didn't add any of their water to my tank, but... These things happen. I just have 1 35L/9.2g and no hospital/quarantine tank. This one fish has been spazzy and...

    My guppies have a parasite (long stringy white/black poop). I just finished the API General Cure treatment and all but one seem healthy. The last one is still struggling. Do I dose the whole tank again right away, or wait another few days to see if she gets better, or pull her out to an...
  18. Fish
    My son's guppies have some kind of internal parasite (long stringy poop & 1 dead fish) and I'm treating the tank with API General Cure. My concern is that the meds clearly state to avoid contact with human skin and that it's a known carcinogen, so how do I make the tank safe for us to put hands...

    I am using flubendazole 10% (from Doc) as a general de-wormer for new fish during their initial quarantine. I currently have 6 kerri tetras (Inpaichthys kerri) that have been in my bare-bottom 10 gallon quarantine tank for 5 weeks now. I followed the instructions on Doc's site...
